Ebb: A Group Exhibition themed around the human experience of water and its mythologies opened on 3 November 2022.
I am exhibiting two pieces from my current series Head Under Water series - "I can breathe under water" and "Abstracted distractions". Here is an extract from my Artist Statement for some insight into my thoughts:
"The edges of the form are broken and with no clear start and end to the body, it becomes a part of the environment. Discombobulated soups of self-portrait. An examination of the disparate parts of self that make the whole, and how these parts interact with each other and the environment. A reference to a space that makes the artist feel that she is safe and can breathe. Under water, the edges of the artist are blurred; her body and the liquid push pull hold."
Daor Contemporary is situated in the trendy industrial Port of Cape Town.
The exhibition is on until mid-January 2023.
